This tapestry is based on the painting by Pierre Auguste Renoir of Monet Painting in His Garden at Argenteuil. Pierre Auguste Renoirs (1841 - 1919) art celebrates lifes temporal pleasures, the here and now of his time, more than any other Impressionist artist. Preferring to paint his friends and lovers, his masterful depictions of their candid facial features and body stances convey the youthful spirit and intimate charm that ignited the feeling of an Eden of earthly pleasures.
His portrayal of luminous color, skillfully varied brushstrokes, nuances of light and shadow all worked together to form a warm sensuality that made him a leader of the Impressionist movement.
This tapestry has a rod pocket incorporated in the lining on the back for hanging.
